Abstract

This chapter discusses the importance of gender indicators based on experiences in three rural regions in Senegal, an area in which the authors developed multidimensional gender indicators to support practitioners, particularly small and local actors, in project management issues and to inform policy makers. The investigated regional indicators enable an explicit understanding of how and how much the sample regions differ from each other, particularly in terms of nutrition, empowerment and access to resources.
